Video Game: Grammar Games

Grammar Games is an Edutainment Game for PC and Mac created in the 1990s by Davidson (yes, the same company that made the Blaster Series).

It consisted of four minigames:

  • Rainforest Rescue alternates between a grammar quiz and a video game, asking players to answer grammatical questions in order to fill up their fuel tanks and then allowing players to fly a helicopter around the rainforest, putting out fires and saving animals.

  • Jungle Gizmo asks the player to pick the correct form of a noun, and each correct answer builds a new component of a Rube Goldberg Device.

  • Falling Fruit asks the player to insert appropriate punctuation into sentences by moving a toucan around and catching the correct punctuation marks.

  • Hidden Wonders is an editing exercise in which the player corrects all of the errors the page.
